“We need to teach the next generation”.
Fergal Smith isn’t an average surfer. Having grown up on an organic vegetable farm in Ireland, Fergal learned the importance of family, food and a healthy lifestyle from a young age.
Despite travelling far and wide in search of waves, Fergal remains true to his roots and continues to live in Ireland to this day, having established a community garden on his farm, Moy Hill. Desillusion editor Pierre David spent 4 days with Fergal in his hometown of County Clare to gain a deeper insight into Fergal’s world and the importance of living a self sustaining and happy life.
From surfing huge waves to endorsing organic farming, Fergal Smith is undoubtedly one of the most inspiring human beings alive and a unique surfer.
